We spent our honeymoon in this beautiful and calm hotel. The staff is really nice and helpful. The rooms, although they will be will soon renovated, where beautiful and have a view on the transparent sea. Activities are great, we recommend the horse riding and diving. Only point, the bar on the beach had never someone behind. You need always... More

This Lodge is on a great long beach by the blue Indian Ocean. It will be upgraded by mid 2015 but at present it is a little faded and jaded. The current Indian Arabic theme is to be changed to more modern beach look. New managers, Andbeyond promise big changes in the future but at present the location has some... More

We stayed 7 nights at Benguerra Island and loved it. We had the lodge to ourselves for 4 nights.. We did many of the offered activities, scuba diving, dune climbing, pansy shelling, dhow sailing, horse riding etc. One can do many things and new ideas are eagerly picked up. The food is excellent and fresh from the sea. Victor does... More

Unbeatable location Beyond any expectation This is heaven The casita was amazing service impeccable Only the food was a bit too sophisticated and not that good. But the place is divine The real thing: palm trees, turquoise shallow water, real natives fishing in the early morning and then frying the fish for their families, quiet, nature, may it stay just...

Even if you have to pay for each day a lot of money (about 1000,00 euro FB) you also will be required to buy water both at dinner / lunch time or from the minibar!!! To be honest you can have a big, well-finished, panoramic room provided with a king size bed and a double bathroom (internal tank of copper... More

The Benguerra Lodge is a great way to end a vacation in Africa. After flights, transfers, all around southern africa and early morning safaris etc, the Benguerra is a change of pace to just relax and chill at the end of a honeymoon. Accomodation is spacious and comfortable, staff really go out of their way to make sure you have... More

We've been guests of the Banguerra Lodge for 5 days and, very frankly speaking, we wouldn't ever got away! Great place, beautiful landscapes, very kind and efficient staff (in particular Arlindo and Josè, our butler), lovely accomodation, delicious food and a lot of interesting and exciting extra activities...especially the so called "cast away pic nic" among the uncontaminated white dunes...

This hotel is a great haven on a stunningly beautiful island in the heart of Mozambique's aquatic national park. The Casita just off the beach provided the perfect blend of privacy and visibility. Clean rooms, excellent food and friendly staff all combined to make for a fantastic start to our southern Africa trip. If you love the idea of being... More
